words from president obama, i'm going to look away here on twitter the first lady michelle obama not too long ago has tweeted that this is just a huge moment for them, i'm trying to find the exact wording that she used here. but michelle obama has come out and thanked supporters for everything they've done for her during this campaign and again as you see some of the images of folks in chicago waiting for the president to come out, many people getting on twitter and on facebook to express their opinions about how this election is playing out. as we see some of it although the commentary come in tonight. a lot of celebration, a lot of people are saying they are happy they got the chance to express their opinion. there's the other side, some folks not so happy about it. other folks just happy with the way the process works. others we've even seen some comments about the electoral college. wanting to revisit how the united states handles the elections. some of those issues playing out on social media. just an incredible outpouring of commentary on social media like we've never seen before.
from ann romney and first lady michelle obama has been reaching out and we can see what she said. she tweeted this. all of our hard work these past 18 months comes down to what happens right now she says. let's not leave anything to chance. now some of these tweets are written by campaign staffers but this one was actually signed with michelle obama's initials which is to indicate that she wrote it herself. now in the last hour, over on the gop side chairman of the republican party here in california. tom ballacarro seemed happy from the east coast results. expect a long night for california propositions. we want you to talk to us this election night and would like to hear from you. you can join the conversation by going to facebook.com/ktvu or find us on tweeter@ktvu. you can use the hatch tag, ktvu 2012 for that election conversation that we will be having tonight. >>> we are continuing to track the latest election results, especially the results coming in, in some of the key states including virginia, florida and ohio. the presidential election could hinge on those results. the lat
last night, when you had the picture of michelle obama and then the two girls, sasha and malia who have grown in lovely young women out of the public idea to credit to michelle obama's mother who has done that. coming out of it. where does president obama go from here? a lot of things are said never election. whereas mitt romney's speech was so gracious last night, president obama's left me a little flat. though i think everyone can feel that emotion with all the applauding. interesting to me that republicans, one of the things we talked about in the primary was republicans are going to have to win the independent vote. romney and all the polls, winning the independent vote. it turns out after america votes, that democrats don't even need to go for the independent vote anymore. if president obama wants to achieve big things he has the reach across aisle. president bush when he won in 2004, comes out of that after he won a device i victory like president obama. he tried to do two major things. social security reform and immigration reform. on both of those things, his own party in partic

the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe

and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m

there and you see michelle obama and dr. jill biden greeting each other as well. what struck most of us in the news room about this picture was this really doesn't seem to be a scene of jubilation. it seems to be a scene of relief, heavy sigh, if you will, felt in that room at the moment that the president understood he had won four more years at the whitehouse. let's go back to mccormick place as we are with the crowd there waiting for the president to step out. bob. >> well, you know, i've covered a lot of campaigns in my time and it's always more fun to be with the winner than it is with the loser. there's nothing quite as sad or as sad a places to be, to be in the campaign headquarters of the guy that lost. it's just tough on everybody. >> i think that's why you saw the whitehouse particularly chose that picture. they did not want to look like they are spiking the ball. and even gave axelrod an interview they did not want to appear they were celebrating too early and not tush sor to be sof gracious. having fought campaigns before people know what it's like to be on the losing side.

marriage. michelle obama is working and barack was in law school and now she's the first lady. theoretically people can flip-flop and to some extent it's not uncommon these days to have a marriage where couples kind of take turns and i think that takes the pressure off of marriage, say like the marriage is one read about in 1952 where the woman felt unfulfilled and the man felt like there was a news around his neck. that model of marriage has loosened up a bit and created happy stable marriages. >> host: but i wonder that kids. there are clearly more kids in daycare, small children than there were 40 years ago. >> guest: lots of countries have -- scandinavian countries, children go to daycare when they are one and mother's day home. i don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. mothers do -- politically neutral and they only measure like you and measure americans homage time do do you spend in leisure activities and how much time you spend with your kids? parents spend more time with their kids now than they did in the 60's and 70's. don't ask me how. >> host: but if, and i'

watch parties through the night. and world leaders were quick to congratulate mr. obama on his victory. as we take a live look at the white house now, nbc's michelle kosinski has more on the global reaction to the news that mr. obama will call the white house home for four more years. >> reporter: people partied through the night watching the results come in live. london, 4:30 in the morning, crowds of brits, not americans, british citizens were in there cheering on the results. today we're also seeing reaction come in from world leaders. israel offered congratulations. >> i want to congratulate president obama on his reelection. i think the united states of america again demonstrated why it's the greatest democracy on earth. the security relationship between the united states and israel is rock solid. >> reporter: we're even hearing from the taliban and pakistan saying, you know what, obama and romney are pretty much the same enemy, that they will continue to fight. for president obama, who just won his next term, he gets his first order of overseas business, at least courtesy of brit
